How long does it take GameFreak to come up with over 100 pokemon?

It seems difficult how long do you think it takes?

I believe they actually come up with at least 200+ Pokemon, BUT only pick out the best to release in the upcoming games.

Approximately 3 days and 7 hours.

4 hours to retrieve the heavy psychedelics (Peyote and DMT, mostly).

2 hours for it to kick in.

3 days to commune with the spirits (read: trip out).

1 hour to write down what they came up with.

Then they pay Ken Sugimori to do the artworks in candy corn and HJs.

My way is the high way. You'd have to be lactose intolerant to not learn to love it.
Ha! Cheese puns.

I'm sure they've finished all the designs by now since they only have a few months left to finish programming everything, assuming they don't delay it.

I'm sure it's very easy.
I could do it if I have to. The only problem I would have to say is naming them.
But I suck at thinking up a ton of names so...

But then they have to make up moves and stats for them.

Depends on the size of their art team and the process of design that they use. Considering Gamefreak makes a FORTUNE off every Pokemon game I'd say they have a pretty large team, particularly in the art department.

There you go.

Rumor has it that they actually designed over 1000 Pokemon for Gen.1, but only 151 made the cut. They probably have way more unused designs than we can imagine just laying around their offices.
